Hi, This could be due to anal fissures, hemorrhoids, etc. You would need a clinical examination and relevant investigations including blood tests, stool examination and if required a colonoscopy to find out the cause of your symptoms. It would be best to consult a surgeon for your symptoms to find out the cause of your complaints. Till then you could try eating a high-fiber diet, using stool softener, taking pain killer and having a sitz bath for your symptoms. Apply calamine lotion at the site, keep the area clean and well moisturized, wear lose, comfortable clothes and maintain good personal hygiene. Regards.
